2013 Subaru Forester Maintenance Schedule

When does Subaru recommend steering and suspension service for 2013 Subaru Foresters?

Does Your 2013 Subaru Forester Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2013 Subaru Forester, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Forester jolts, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2013 Subaru Forester in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Forester steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Subaru Forester Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2013 Subaru Forester suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2013 Subaru Forester’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Subaru Forester shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2013 Subaru Forester suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2013 Forester Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Subaru's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Subaru Forester? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Subaru Forester power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Subaru's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
